Phone won't switch on

For some reason my phone somehow switched itself off on saturday. and it now will not switch back on. when i attempt to switch it on, i get as far as typing in the 4 digit pin number, at which point it automatically turns itself back off. once the screen goes blank, the words 'contact service' appear in black letters. this has never happened before and i'm not sure why its happened. the battery is fully charged so cannot be that at fault, please help?

The screen lights up but blank white, it won't do anything including switching off


The first thing to check weather your phone is working fine is by plugging your iphone to a computer using you usb cable.

* If the phone have been detected in normal way when itunes comes out and give complete details and information of your phone,it seems your phone LCD screen has the problem,it somehow need replacement.(bringing it to apple center is the solution for parts replacement.)

* But if then phone have been detected as recovey mode,your phone firmware seems to have problem,by somehow fixing this basically,try to press and hold POWER + HOME button simultaneously for about 20-30,then see if the phone sets to normal.

If not,then you need to restore the phone by following this procedure : FOLLOW ME

If you have some concerns,please let me know and i get back to you as soon as possible.

My NOKIA3110C powers itself off

Sounds like the firmware of your phone has somehow become corrupted. I have seen a few times Nokia phones that, for no apparent reason, start requesting a security code or restriction code and it always turns out to be a firmware issue. You would need to take you phone to a reputable phone engineer or Nokia Service Point for repair.

Cannot switch off my nokia 6500 slide.

You must have updated the firmware yourself. Go to Nokia Care and get it done there. When they do it, the complete firmware is removed and reinstalled. When you do it only the new files are changed.

Hi there, The last thing you should do is to switch the phone on! You should ether take it to a repair center or open it yourself and clean it with spirits or alcohol.
